Despite some elemental flaws in logic and plausibility, this is a tense and potent film at times that hints at the sort of greatness that we can find to a greater degree in Ms. Arnold's other works, Wasp and Fish Tank.

Three-fifths of a great film, this stylish, Glasgow-based, Danish-inspired stalker drama does not deliver on its promise.

Sets a chilling downer mood that gets under your skin like few films ever do.

October 5, 2007
A brilliantly conceived thriller that keeps us guessing right up to the very end, Red Road intrigues but frustrates by its slow development and often incomprehensible Scottish dialogue

A strange sort of map of the city [is] spread across these fragmented cubes of visual information. And there's also the metaphorical map of the characters' lives, where they're coming from and where they're going.

I like that you're never sure where this road is going to lead.

Like the Peeping Tom-paranoia of similar recent films Disturbia and Civic Duty, this finely crafted debut feature by Scottish writer/director Andrea Arnold packs a wallop.

Red Road is an atmospheric little thriller made up of equal parts paranoia, loneliness and anxiety.

The glacially paced film is tersely episodic, and scenes are thrown onto the screen like jagged bits of raw meat that have been torn from a bone.

It's a jarring sensation, for a thriller not to be about the chase, or the mysterious force of evil lurking in the shadows, but about an intangible gulf dividing two people occupying the same room.

Though it's paced as a thriller, the film ultimately emerges as a haunting exploration of how grief can weigh on us, and the depths to which it can drive us.

A must for movie lovers who want to see how so much drama, mystery and emotion can be created from so little.

It should be noted that Red Road contains one extremely graphic sex scene. But like much else that transpires in Red Road, what is seen is not always what it looks like on the surface.

some may find the denouement a tad sentimental, but it is a long, dark and twisted journey that takes us there, scrutinising the shadier contours of human loss and guilt like a grainy face on a screen.

Jackie's story extends beyond her control, no matter what she sees, thinks she sees, or tries to see.
